Ivanka Trump was all smiles as she and her husband, Jared Kushner, entertained friends at their luxury condo in Surfside, Florida, on Friday afternoon.
The former White House senior advisers were spotted having lunch on their large balcony, which overlooks the Atlantic Ocean. They have spent the past two years living at Arte Surfside, but they are expected to be moving out of the building sometime this year.
Ivanka, 41, was dressed in a white long-sleeve V-neck top and a pair of aviator sunglasses to shield her eyes from the Florida sun. She recently cut her long blonde hair, but she has yet to be seen wearing it down.
Her locks were pinned back for the lunch, which has been her go-to hairstyle for the past week. Jared, who celebrated his 42nd birthday on Tuesday, opted for a casual white polo shirt.

Ivanka appeared to be in good spirits as she chatted with their guests, smiling and laughing while she entertained.
The couple had privacy glass installed on their balcony to shield it from view back in 2021, but they could still be seen sitting at their outdoor table with three of their pals.
They have a new set of friends in Miami after being ostracized by many of the high-society connections they once socialized with while living in New York City.
On Thursday, Ivanka was spotted golfing with friends at the Everglades Club in Palm Beach, just miles away from Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach.
Whether or not her slight was intentional, her father, Donald Trump, supposedly has a grudge against the elite Everglades Club, which allegedly denied him membership, prompting him to open his own rival golf club in 1999.
‘Everglades Club had its ways, very rich and based on Palm Beach traditions,’ Greg Melvin, Palm Beach resident and business owner, told The Hollywood Reporter in 2016. ‘It’s a private club and they can say no. They didn’t like Trump and wouldn’t let him in. So he set up another club as a big eff you.’
Ivanka seemed worlds away from her father’s nearby Mar-a-Lago estate as she joined her pals at the ritzy club just a few months after she confirmed she wouldn’t be a part of his Trump 2024 presidential campaign.

Ivanka recently cut her long blonde hair , but she has yet to be seen wearing it down
The mom once again wore her short hair pulled back and covered with a white cap, keeping just how much of her locks she had cut off hidden.
The drive from her home in Surfside to the Palm Beach club is roughly an hour and a half, making it an easy day trip for the mom.
It’s been a busy week for Ivanka, who was spotted leaving a hair salon in Miami on Wednesday afternoon.
Most people like to show off their new ‘dos when they get their hair done, but she did the opposite. Instead of rocking a sleek blowout, her blonde hair was center-parted and pulled back into a tiny twist at the nape of her neck when she left.
Loose tendrils framed her face, and from the back, it looked as though she had gotten more than a few inches cut off. She had much longer hair earlier this month when she was seen sporting a ponytail to play padel at billionaire businessman Wayne Boich’s mansion on New Year’s Day.
Ivanka’s trip to the salon suggests a return to her White House bob haircut, which she debuted on a political trip to South America in 2019 and later grew out.
It’s unclear when exactly she chopped her hair. It’s possible that her trip to the salon was a follow-up appointment after her initial cut. She wore her locks pulled back and covered with a cap to go for a walk with a friend near her home in Surfside, Florida, on Monday.

Ivanka has tended to favor longer hairstyles over the years, with the exception of the neck-length bob she experimented with as first daughter. Prior to that, the last time she had a chin-length bob was in 2005, nearly two decades ago.
After leaving the salon, she was seen returning to her home at Arte Surfside, which is nestled between Miami Beach and Bal Harbour.
It is one of the most expensive complexes in Miami-Dade County, with an average rental price of nearly $47,000 per month. There is a tennis court on the roof, and the family has their own private pool and yard.
Ivanka was also photographed having a meeting with three women on her balcony on Wednesday. They appeared to be employees, and one of them was holding what looked to be a laptop in her hand.
It’s unclear what is in store for her career-wise — if anything — after she officially quit politics a few months ago.
Before her father, Donald Trump, became president, she appeared on his reality show The Apprentice, served as executive vice president of the Trump Organization, and had her own eponymous fashion lines.
She gave up her former life in New York City to serve in the Trump administration and never returned back to it.

Ivanka and Jared are close to finishing the renovations on their $24 million waterfront mansion on Indian Creek, an exclusive island known as the ‘Billionaire Bunker,’ and are expected to move in sometime this year
Two years later, they seem to be happier than ever in their new community, where they have found new friends and are getting ready to move into their dream home.
After keeping a relatively low profile, the former first daughter has returned to documenting her life on Instagram, and she doesn’t seem to have any desire to return to her old life in Washington, D.C.
In November, she released a statement saying she would not be a part of her father’s 2024 presidential campaign. Instead, she has chosen to prioritize her family and their private life.
Now that Ivanka is officially done with politics, she has been filling her days with workout sessions with her personal trainer. She is regularly spotted driving to and from the gym in matching workout sets that highlight her toned physique.
Ivanka and Jared are close to finishing the renovations on their $24 million waterfront mansion on Indian Creek, an exclusive island known as the ‘Billionaire Bunker.’
The couple bought the fixer-upper a little over a year after they dropped $31.8 million on a two-acre plot of land on the island in 2020. They plan on moving into the spatial 8,500-square-foot abode with their children once it is finally completed.
Ivanka and Jared have been seen enjoying walks to Indian Creek, both with and without their children, to check on the progress of their property.
